Pull the fridge away from the wall and inspect the compressor. Your description sounds like the compressor is hitting something. It is rubber mounted and usually can be pushed away from whatever it is hitting.You do not want to jamb something to stop the noise, as the compressor needs to move freely. Many compressors shake during start up and shutdown, and this is considered normal. Abnormal if the compressor hits something during this movement.
run the diagnostics on the unit from the enclosed tech spec sheet to see if possibly you have a bad thermistor/sensor in the unit,or possibly a bad defrost thermostat or defrost heater or the mainboard in the back is defective
Kindly provide few more details so that i could provide more appropriate solution to your problem :-
1. How old is the unit? 2. Kindly hear the noise - Is it from the freezer section or upper back or lower back of the refrigerator? 3. Do you hear the compressor running? 4. Any problem with temperature in lower section or is it limited to freezer section?
two seperate issues,the springs within the compressor housing that support the piston have broken,can only be resolved by replacing compressor....in regards to the ice build up,you have a defrost problem.defrost issues can usually be resolved for about 120-160.00 through a qualified servicer
Good day, If it makes the clunk or banging noise when the compressor is shutting off, then yes, internal spring or springs inside the compressor have broken. Only solution to that problem is a new compressor. P.S. these things can run a long time with this condition, but ultimately .....
I m not to good at hearing up close these days. I need a description of the sound and where its coming form high, low, back front, top back?
1 thing refrigerators can do is gurgle when they shut off and this is normal. Another is the inside fan (evaporator fan) can be whirling and the bearings going out and it will make all kinds of racket. Open the freezer then the refrigerator door next time and see if its louder in 1 place than the other. Does it make this noise when it stops? A compressor has internal mounting springs and this can cause a knock or heavy thud when it cuts off sometimes but it can still work for a long time.
Sounds like an internal mounting spring for the compressor. Only solution is replacing the compressor. However the compressor can run in this condition for years. Replacement compressors only have a one year warranty. A new refrigerator comes with a five year warranty.
